Mr. Robot…

It’s a dream come true, a clandestine hacking group hopefully has infiltrated The World’s Largest Telecommunications Company’s Uverse computer system and it has totally disabled our repair system. I’ve dreamt of this day and I’m sure just saying this would bring down the rath of my upper level managers… This too will pass

It’s Time To Write…

It’s been about a month since I’ve posted anything of substance here… Finally my life has become bearable. It took 19 years for my life go from existing to wonderful. Without going into detail, things have blossomed and I have purpose in my life… Year after year I masked my pain with a smile for I was Pagliacci…

Over the coming days I will tell you my story… This too will pass

Now I’m Old…

After Wednesday’s sad news about singer Prince dying, I felt somehow a lot older. In my mind Prince was a young 36 but upon hearing he was 57 years old, well I never thought he was only two years younger than me…

Death comes to everyone. I always ask. “All those who will not die in the next 80 years, please raise your hands.” It’s the way things go. Am I afraid to die? Hardly, as long as it’s not choking on my saliva but there are worse ways I suppose. This post isn’t about being gloomy, it’s actually about being free of the birth death birth cycle.

The Hindu wise ones say that by attaining enlightenment is the only way out of this circular cycle. I tend to believe what they are saying and the fact that we all are points of light and energy.  Prince added his light and energy to our collective consciousness and then went on down the road… This too will pass.

Horse To Water…

These last 30 days have been beyond wild… What’s that old saying, “More tears are shed for dreams that come true than for those who don’t.” I have been quiet here for a reason, when it’s time to tell my story, it will happen. 

Toonce has been behaving and still waits for me at the top of the hill for me, rain or shine. What a loyal meower. I mean what cat do you know that is loyal to his caretaker. Maybe he knows where his cat yums comes from or maybe he’s a truly good cat?

I haven’t had much time to check out other blogs. Please don’t think I’ve abandoned you, kind readers. This too will pass

The Patience of Jobe… 

  The other day Rob brought his dog up to the property and what did Basha “The Dog” do the second she got there? She sought out Toonce. The problem was, Toonce was in no mood for a dog with a tongue hanging out to bark at him. Basha kept barking, “I’m a dog! Do you want me to chase you and nip at you? We can play!” Toonce declined her offer and in fact rejected her offer of fun outright…
Basha is full of vitality and enjoys running around, Toonce not so much… This too will pass

Congradulations…

I happened to pass thru the company door where the mailman usually shoves the wad of junk mail thru the undersized slot in the door. The mail mostly consists of offers for telecommunications classes by for profit schools and debt collectors attempting to find a guy who hasn’t worked out of the garage in 15 years… 

I looked down and saw my name on the envelope and said, “Who wants me… Do I owe someone money?” I ripped open the end and found a letter from The CEO of The World’s Largest Telecommunications Company. It read, “Juan… On behalf of the board of directors, I thank you for being a valued employee.” It went onto say how things in the industry have and will change but I have kept up with the changes…

Evidentially he didn’t read my last appraisal because I am a tired dinosaur who doesn’t understand what drives a packet of information down the Internet super highway… He said, “My 35th year was special and hoped for my continued success… The signature was stamped but I didn’t expect anything more… This too will pass

A Matt Update…

How time has flown by, it was just a little awhile ago that I sent Matt down to San Diego. Evidentially he’s doing quite well and he might be able to live a life rather than exist. He has settled into the duel diagnosis house and he’s doing well…

 If you’ve kept up with these posts, it was just a couple of months ago that things looked pretty hopeless and I thought I had completely lost him, so when I broke down yesterday and phoned him, I heard a sense of peace in his voice. I’ve prayed on my knees for him to recover and I can only pray he remains on the path to health… This too will pass

12:01am Sunday

It looks like The World’s Largest Telecommunications Company is either going to try to carry on without us worthless workers. The managers have been given their strike assignments and a private contractor has begun replacing locks on key field cabinets. The union held a strike vote and 96 percent of us voted for a strike to happen. A two week vacation will be just fine with me, longer would work too. 

On April 18th, I complete 34 years of working for The World’s Largest Telecommunnications Company and I have never felt so worthless. It’s all about meeting their unattainable numbers… I refuse to cheat and cheating is the only way anyone can make the numbers. As soon as I turn 591/2 I’m out of here… This too will pass
